Rescued Chicken- what breed?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I rescued this chicken after it fell from a truck. What breed is this? I'm fairly certain it's a cockerel.

I would agree that he's a pretty cockerel. You can just make out male saddle and hackle feathers starting to come in. He almost looks like an euskal oiloa/marraduna basque cockerel but those are pretty uncommon so I doubt it's that. Hopefully someone will be able to identify him!

I'm thinking a Dixie Rainbow or Pioneer, one of those made up slow meaties.

I agree.

I should add he is very calm and loves my girls. They love on him and carry him around. He just goes with it like that's how it's supposed to be. I hate that we have to rehome him. Roosters aren't allowed in Nashville.

Agreed

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
